Rep. Kirkpatrick serves on the Appropriations Committee in the U.S. House of Representatives. 

Appropriations Committee

The Appropriations Committee is considered one of Congress’ three exclusive “power committees.” Kirkpatrick has been appointed to three subcommittees under Appropriations: Defense, Energy and Water and Financial Services.

As a member of the Appropriations Committee, Rep. Kirkpatrick will be in a unique position to advocate and deliver, not just for Southern Arizona, but for the entire state. This committee holds the ‘Power of the Purse’ and determines how our government allocates our resources. These subcommittee designations are key wins for the district’s priorities which include good schools, economic development, affordable higher education, quality health care, robust infrastructure and our competitive defense industry.
